After firing my last graphic designer because of his chronic procrasination, missing deadlines, and constantly going overbudget, I was reluctant to hire a new one, but I was surprisingly happily when I found Shay. After we talked about the project and long it would take to complete, he did a few preliminary sketches and we decided on one. A few days later, he sent me the black and white version of the final sketch and then the colored version and it was utterly amazing. The logo was a simple design, but it was really hard to capture, but Shay hit it right on the head! It looked like a logo that normally would have cost a few thousand dollars to design and I was very pleased with it. I was so impressed with Shay's work that I hired him again to redesign a children's book caption for me, and again, I was not disappointed with the final product. Shay was always friendly, enthusiastic, and he called, texted, and emailed me all the time to ask for my inut. He did go over budget, but only by a few dollars, but I had already told him that if extra time was needed, it was okay. Also, he is very business and sent me all the paperwork for the design, which I was unaccustomed to, but it was refreshing. Tiberius St. Judge Writer/ Chief Creative Officer at SpoonPen Publishing

I hired Bill to work out illustrations for a self-published children's book. The book is based on my dog. He did a great job re-creating my dog from photos that I submitted. Bill is creative, and detail oriented; not to mention extremely easy to work with. I would hire him for my next illustration job.

Elwood Grier designed the cover art for my chapbook. I was so pleased I sought him out for the cover of my full length nonfiction text God’s Daughter (JonesInk, 2010). The art work stood out in such a way, when I attended book shows and signings, other attendee’s initial compliments would be on the cover’s frame worthy design. Professional and creative, Mr. Grier is already slated to complete the artwork for my upcoming poetry collection. Myla Jones, author

Claudia Wolf produced the full color illustrations for a board book my small firm is publishing. She is an exceptionally talented and thoroughly professional artist. She began the project by carefully reviewing the text her pictures would support. We then discussed what the author and I felt the illustrations should be during which Claudia had many excellent suggestions. After taking us through the process of sketches, line drawings, and color selections she produced illustrations which totally support and truly enhance the humor theme of the book. She then designed the page layout to meet the precise requirements of the printer. And when the layout had to be modified for an e-book she worked directly with the e-publisher to quickly have it ready. Claudia completed the project within the time she estimated and her fee was exactly as her contract represented. Equally important, Claudia proved to be absolutely delightful and wonderfully straight forward to work with. I will most certainly want her to do any future illustration work needed.

Jaun Raza illustrated the cover and interior one of my recent books, The Magic Umbrella of Oz, by Paul Dana, and the cover of Queen Ann in Oz, both books published by The Royal Publisher of Oz. Both the author and I were thrilled by three signifcant factors that Raza brought to the table: 1) the quality of his work, which is astounding, detailed, beautiful and profoundly reflective of what we were looking for. Oftentimes, it would even exceed what we had envisioned. 2) A high level of professionalism; he communicates, listens well, strives hard to please, and submits his work on time. 3) An ability to comprehend what the narrative needs and how best to illustrate it; this allows him to both work independently when the need calls for it, and interdependently, in that he takes direction from the author and publisher when they have certain specific requirements that must be met (be it character images, locations, etc.) I am not only thrilled with Raza's work, but fully intend to use him again on future projects. You simply cannot go wrong with this illustrator.

When I was writing a memoir, Art's Cello, a few years ago, I wanted illustrations. But not photographs -- I was looking for something that would mirror the creativity of making a cello. I decided on drawings. Jack's work caught my eye: realistic but unique. I ended up using his illustrations in the print version of the book; the digital edition was published by Kindle, and selected as one of the 20 best books of 2014. Aside from the work, which was superb, I was really impressed by his professionalism: he prioritized it, worked fast, and was extremely good at working with me to realize the admittedly vague ideas of what I had in mind. The result was better than I could have hoped for: he brought the world of cello-making to life.

We needed a storyboard artist to help with a fundraising pitch for our short film, Attempted Burglary, in 2013. We were impressed by Alejandro's past work and felt his "comic book-esque" style would be a good fit for our project. In essence, we needed a suite of "show pieces." Frames that were more detailed and elaborate then we might have used in our actual production. We weren't disappointed. Alejandro was professional, friendly and listened to our needs. He treated our relatively low budget movie with big picture respect. His frames came in ahead of deadline and he was flexible when we requested edits. We were especially impressed with Alejandro's ability and willingness to adjust the complexity of each frame to suit the needs of the shot. With the help of his art work, we met our fundraising goal and our short has screened at several festivals around the country. We have and will continue to recommend Mr. Gonzalez.

Working with Erica was uncomplicated!! I needed a promo ad for my documentary and she delivered! I told her my vision and gave her creative license to use her imagination as an artist. The end result was bigger than I had imagined. She delivered within the time frame established and tweaked things without difficulty. I've already asked Erica to help me with my second project to illustrate for my children's book. I highly recommend working with Erica.

    I have had the opportunity to work with this illustrator for my new short story. Diana is very thoughtful. She not only designed a magnificent picture for my book but also wanted to learn about the details of the story. I have no hesitation in recommending her.
